10th Gala Benefit: Live Auction Experience

Merci de votre soutien!

The Alliance Française of Minneapolis and St Paul is grateful for your support of our gala benefit. This annual event supports our work, bringing French and Francophone cultural and educational programs to the Twin Cities.

At the event, you can bid on our silent and live auctions, play heads or tails, and give during our Fund-a-Need!


Play Heads or Tails !

It’s a game of luck that could win you an amazing dining experience! During the live auction you’ll compete against fellow guests to ultimately receive the royal treatment with certificate for a dinner for six at Smack Shack in the North Loop.

Guests can purchase up to two ‘plays’ per person, for $20 each.

The Prize
Dinner for six at Smack Shack, which will include two bottles of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc and a dozen oysters. The shucker’s selection will be followed by each guest’s choice of salad, and entrée choice of a lobster boil or ribeye.
